Students seeking to put their legal skills to work in music, the arts, or other creative industries can choose to combine their JD degree with a Master of Science in Creative Practice Leadership. By combining courses such as copyright law or entertainment law with a co-op in a creative industry, students can gain the legal knowledge and expertise that will make them effective legal advocates for their clients. Through their coursework in creative practice leadership, students will explore new approaches to transformational leadership in the fields of critical creative practice, cultural entrepreneurship, and innovation in the arts and entertainment industries. Students who pursue the JD alongside the Master of Science in Creative Practice Leadership can take up to 16 credits of courses that count toward both degrees, accelerating their educational path; students should consult their advisors in the School of Law and the College of Arts, Media and Design for more information.
All JD students, including FlexJD students, are ordinarily eligible to apply into dual degree pathways.
